Located at the center of Tokyo, The Chiyoda and Chuo area have been playing an important role in Tokyo's growth into a metropolis from the early Edo period. Since the early times to this day, we can still discover the vibrant life surrounding the famed Sanno Festival and Kanda Festival home to the Chiyoda area.

Amidst these Edo scenes the Hie Shrine, as guardian deity of the Tokugawa shogunate, held "Ujikocho" (shrine parishioners) in each area including Kojimachi, Nihonbashi, Kyobashi, and Ginza. In alteration with the Kanda Festival, the Sanno Festival is celebrated every other year in June, showcasing a grand display of extravagant floats (dashi) and decorative dolls (tsuke-matsuri). Together these festivals have been named "Tenka Matsuri", carried on by the "Ujikocho" as the essence of the refined culture of townspeople as it was expressed towards the samurai class and other surrounding townships.

This exhibition focuses on these traditions carried into the Meiji Restoration, and will attempt to trace the 150 years of history and culture embedded in the "Ujikocho" of the Chiyoda area.

Organizer: 3331 Arts Chiyoda
Supervisors: Masaya Takiguchi (Lecturer at Seijo University and Rissho University), Shinobu Kato (Research Professor at Wayo Women's Univeristy)
